No, you can colour them in Opera and MSIE, with non-standard CSS
selectors but you won't be able to change their look completely and
cross browser. For example Safari will always show the same ones.
Also notice that what is "ugly and grey" for you is "familiar" to
users, whereas an own slider control or style might be confusing at
first. We make a lot of decisions about web sites subconsciously and
when I need to find an interactive element first I feel uneasy - no
matter how versed you are in the web.
your own scrollbars with the YUI slider control , but in most cases
it is not worth the hassle IMHO.
